Good to see this happening in the North District - well done to those organising and athletes, clubs and coaches who are supporting the sessions. ...
Another fantastic turn out of 70 athletes in Grant Park this morning for the North area training session. Although temperatures were well below zero underfoot conditions were perfect. It really is good to see athletes of all abilities coming along and supporting the sessions. Thanks to Carol and George for timing and Hannah for looking after the teas. Due to cross country league races the next North session will be Saturday 3rd February in Grant Park with the first rep starting at 10am. There may be a few less oldies that day due to the Scottish Masters down at Kilmarnock.
